AMF/GA Question (in General)
April 11 2005 1:18 PM EDT
Amf reduces damage, which allows GA to hit for more, because the ratio of GA level to Damage is greater, correct?

I thought AMF just sent back a portion of the damage. You still take full damage I believe, but they also take damage. So AMF and GA together deals more to them but you still take a normal amount....I think

No, AMF reduces damage, I KNOW that.

Err...sorry about that, I comepletely didn't pay attention to what I typed. AMF does reduce damage. Maybe CB and college work shouldn't go hand in hand =P As for your question I don't know but I would assume GA does less because you recieve less damage. You are talking about both enchantments on the same team right?

AMF can reduce up to 100% of the damage, but it can only return 40% (I think). But I don't think it would make your GA hit for more, unless the damage you would receive from the DD was out of proportion to your GA...

Wait... more was a bad word to use.
Okay, rough number that are way off.
Let's say a 50k mm comes your way.
You've got your GA trained to whatever amount... I don't know, 30k.
the ratio is 3/5.
Now, you have amf trained, and it blocks 10k of the damage.
Now your GA/damage ratio is 3/4 correct?
So GA follows actual damage recieved, and no the amount the spell is trained for...?

I think GA is damage received, so under that assumption you are correct...
AMF doesn't increase the amount of damage GA returns, but as the amount returned by GA is based on the da,age you take, you can get away with having a lower GA than you normally would.
So in a way, AMF does increase the amount your GA does, as long as your GA isn't already so large it's reached the cap on what it can return (50%?)
AMF will increase the percentage returned by GA proportional to the amount of damage dealt. In the vast majority of these cases, GA will return a higher percentage of damage, but less total damage.
Does anyone know how to calculate 'how much' damage is reduced by amf? For instance, how much damage reduction does an amf of 50k provide if ac/protection/endurance were constant?
it depends on the level of DD spell
heh ok..make the dd spell constant too then :)

This is all speculation and curve-guessing but this is what I have got:
GA deals damage up to 50% of damage dealt, unless that amount is in excess of GA's level; in that case, the total amount is GA's level, reduced by a percentage related to how much in excess the damage was; haven't figured that curve out for lack of data. The final amount includes a plus or minus of about 5%. The damage is further cut in half again (to 1/4) if the source damage was UC. Also, 'damage dealt' also only includes damage above 0 HP.
In relation to AMF, since AMF reduces damage, GA will in turn deal comparatively less; except in the rare case that AMF is reducing the DD from an exceedingly high level to a level that is very close to or below your GA level.
